This new anime will tell a story about what happens to Isekai MC after they return from magical world.
Isekai is one of the most popular anime series genres. Mushoku Tensei, Re: Zero, and Sword Art Online all relate the story of a main character who is transferred into a magical world and subsequently struggles to attain his goal. The upcoming anime series differs from traditional isekai anime in that it depicts the life of Isekai’s main character after he is transferred back to his own world.
Uncle from Another World is a slice-of-life comedy series based on the same-named Japanese manga. Takafumi’s uncle, who went into a coma 17 years ago, is the subject of the series. Suddenly, he stands up, as if he has risen from the dead. Takafumi notices that his uncle enjoys video games the most after waking up from a coma, and Takafumi also discovers that his uncle was isekai’d in a magical world as a heroic guardian. Takafumi was forced to roam with his uncle (who kept magical powers from the isekai world) who is attempting to catch up to the latest two decades of history, which includes smartphones, electric automobiles, and high-speed internet.
Uncle from the anime series Another World will be released in July 2022. Netflix holds the worldwide streaming rights, but the global release date has yet to be confirmed.
The animation production is overseen by Atelier Pontdarc. Shigeki Kawai will direct the anime, with Kenta Ihara writing the script (also worked on Cautious Hero, Mieruko Chan). Kazuhiro Ota (who also worked on Natsu no Arashi!, Negima!, and Pani Poni Dash!) will design the characters.
Takehito KOYASU (who has also voiced Dio, Zeke, Aokiji, and Roswaal) will be voicing the UNCLE. Takafumi will be voiced by Jun Fukuyama (Koro Sensei, Lelouch). Mikaka Komatsu (who has also voiced Maki, Tatsuka, and Tsugumi) will play Fujimiya.
